I've been super busy with work and haven't finished processing all the photos from the Urban Farm Tour this weekend, but things are slowing down and I should have the first post up tomorrow. Stay tuned, because there really some interesting and creative things that we found on the tour!
In the meantime, how about something beautiful to look at? I found these beauties at our last stop on the tour, St. Paul's Community Garden in Independence.
Behold the purple coneflower!
I think someone else must have taken that picture, as I am not the best photog. Click on the picture to biggify it and you can almost see the pollen granules. Just breathtaking...
The daylilies were jealous and decided to pose for the camera also...
And who knew the common milkweed could be so pretty?
I didn't realize that monarch butterflies LOVE milkweed. It grows natively here in Missouri. Repeat after me.....I will never, never, EVER rip this out of my garden again.
And, finally, here's one of many sunflowers that were growing up along the fence lines.
They haven't formed their heads yet, but I thought the star pattern in the middle was really neat.
How's that for starting off your day with a dose of pretty?
